The future is here
Rage was a great game, the weapons rocked. heads slicing off by wing sticks. Shotgun blast to face blows heads off. It even had a RPG feel to it. The great thing about this game. Rage proved you can do a true open world RPG/Shooter. Look at Metro. There should be no reason fallout 4 can have killer First person graphics huge open world and focus on gas masks to breath, better weapons and get away from that 50's stuff. Rage will be the key to future better games. The ID 5 was great and showed the future of gaming as-well. Rage has it all, killer graphics, great gun play, brutal killing and road rage killing. The story is great and with some okay side quests. The trophies are easy to get. If your skilled. So get Rage and enjoy a great game.
Fun, gruesome, short
Rage is a great game with a fun concept. The gameplay is fun, it has the shooter controls of most games and is accurate. The battles are fun, gruesome and the AI is somewhat entertaining. The baddies include the "jackals", "gearheads" and "mutants", all of which have specific hideouts and weapons. The gore and creativity of the levels is a visual feat, as the post-apocalyptic scenes are something out of a movie. The music keeps pace with the action. The enemies that are in the game make the Shotgun the most necessary weapon, which is kind of sad. There are other guns, but they are less effective and you are "rushed" by too many enemies to use much else in most situations. The story is great until the uneventful ending. I didn't know that I beat the game actually. It was very easy, and no real "boss" fight. I don't use any guide. It could have be an EPIC game, but the ending is just bad. The missions are difficult and fun though. Just bring ammo.
There is a fun mini-card game which is very cool. I played it some, but wanted to beat the game first and get all the cards I could. Which leads me to my main gripe. ONCE YOU BEAT THE GAME, YOU CANNOT PLAY ANYMORE AND YOU HAVE TO START OVER. I wanted to play the card game, because it really is fun. However after I beat it, I lost everything and did not have a "save" to go back. So I am not spending another 15+ hours replaying the game just to play the card game. If you know this (like I said, I don't use a guide) it may work out better for you. Worth a play, cheap, fun, just remember to get everything done before ending the game.
BEST IF YOU LIKE BOARDERLANDS
its a really fun game its like a BL and Fallout hybrid it has a lot of funny easter eggs to all in all very fun game
Storyline is a little choppy but it was still fun to play with. I normally don't re-play games but this is one ill re-play over again
What? This game costs less than $10?!?!
I know a lot of people didn't love this game. But, maybe they had high expectations for it when it first came out. I played it months after that. I had heard all the negative buzz about it. I read some good and bad reviews. But, I really enjoyed it. I didn't expect that much. So, it was fun. There is some very fun gunplay in this game. And some crazy characters. Don't fall in love with the pop rockets too much. Those things just annihilate everything. Some of the boss fights were tough...before I got those. ;)
DECENT GAME, JUST LACKING
MULTIPLIER IS PRETTY FUN WITH YOUR BUDDIES BUT EVERYTHING ELSE WAS KINDA MESSED UP. THE CHARACTER IS LIFELESS & THE ENVIRONMENT IS DULL. ITS A PRETTY GAME AND THE COMBAT IS COOL. I WOULD SAY RENT IT TO SEE IF YOU WANT TO BUY IT OR NOT.
this game is so epic if you play it your a ninja
this game was not to hard but not easy eather. thers lots of wepons like shotgun rocket loncher and wingstick which is a boomarang that chops peoples head off.
A bit underwhelmed
I've been a fan of Bethesda games for a long time and they just have the perfect combo of graphics, character development and story lines. I immediately saw a ton of similarity between Rage and the Wasteland stories of the Fallout games so I had a connection right away. I couldn't believe that I could actually DRIVE rad vehicles all over the Wastes and blow stuff up, but either I'm just an awful driver or the gameplay of the vehicles needs more work. The vehicles are incredibly hard to control in a firefight so I thought that part could really use some work. The "jobs" for the game are awesome as only Bethesda can do, however, I found them to be very linear. As in, you can only complete the main story one way and the story follows a strict order. There are little side jobs of course, but the main story line seems very one-directional. And the biggest kicker? I played casually for two weeks, there's a cut scene after a big battle, AND THE CREDITS START ROLLING!!!!!! I couldn't believe it!! I honestly wondered where the other half of the game was. Rage could have been a huge, epic game like Oblivion or Fallout, but I sailed through it in two weeks playing for an hour a day. I'm hoping Rage 2 will be bigger: same graphic awesomeness, awesome stories, but better vehicle handling and make sure to open this game up and make it huge. The potential is there and I WILL play the sequel.
Overall, its okay!
This game is one of my favorites. The gameplay is wicked. The different weapons and ammo types make the game tons of fun. There is quite a lot of things to do and the environments are superb. The driving is different for Bethesda, but came out alright. The difficulty was a little disappointing. I played it on the nightmare (hardest) difficulty and had no trouble beating it. The main characters are dull and stereotypical but can easily be tolerated. The story is a whole different thing. It is the main topic in most reviews and the is the biggest con of the game. It is brief and the ending is never resolved (as if Bethesda is leaving the door open for a sequel). If there is a second game it probably will make the ending of this game more acceptable. Its a thoroughly made game (lots of easter eggs) and beside the story it can be considered to be great. I loved it and if you decide to buy or rent it I hope you enjoy too.
id has outdone themselves again, Rage has "Fantastic" graphics that will amaze you. Just the detail put into the characters, and scenery is amazing, I would go on longer about the graphics but you need to see for yourself.The story was great ,as well,but most people said it was short and they would be right but just the campaign will make you keep playing until you get to the end.The racing , mini games, and side quests, will keep you occupied. This is a must buy.
